Peace Day

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 22
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) Day;” replace the blank with a word or phrase; make the new phrase the title of your poem; and then, write your poem.

How nice to wake up to Peace Day,
harmony riding on coattails.
Humanity balancing scales
of justice, none left in the fray.

Sick of war, we demand a say.
Intolerance is doomed to fail.
How nice to wake up to Peace Day,
harmony riding on coattails.

When we stay divided, we pay.
Shake hands, light candles, and set sail
weapons and hate; clear a new trail
to rebuild this world and display,
how nice to wake up to Peace Day.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
